Complex interactions between the Earth’ spheres and underlying physical processes will be assessed using coupled models and observations in a holistic fashion. Backbone of the SEON approach are state-of-the-art observatories, in-situ measurements, and models.
The project consortium focuses on several research topics:
- Spatio-temporal quantification of ecosystem processes (i.e., NPP)
- Energy and gas exchange of terrestrial ecosystems
- Resource utilization and -efficiency of major crop species
- Exchange processes of aquatic ecosystems and mapping of IOP / AOP
- Air quality and atmospheric transport processes of NO2
- Dynamic of the cryosphere and monitoring of snow/ice parameters
- Modelling trends of agricultural management and impact on soil functions
SEON actively supports young academics and contributes to regular curricula to educate next generation professionals in Earth System Science.
